This is a small but worthwhile response to a recent article : http://portland.indymedia.org/en/2004/06/289995.shtml
Are American Catholics that gullible?
The Pope should show integrity and refuse to pose with any political candidates.
Kerry and Bush - no effective difference.

Today I rode the interstate max north from downtown, a couple of cops got on downtown and after the Rose Quarter, they began checking fares. One was a Portland cop and one was a Milwaukie cop. Is this routine ? I thought Tri-met had its own cops?
I think Portland IMC deserves some statistical content
This is a must-read book!
I wrote this post to another article and felt that it reflects some scene dynamics that should see the light of day. This post should be taken as a response to nationalists of any stripe that stand against proponants of economic sabotage.
Where our focus should lie...
Dr. Lawrence Britt has examined the fascist regimes of Hitler (Germany), Mussolini (Italy), Franco (Spain), Suharto (Indonesia) and several Latin American regimes. Britt found 14 defining characteristics common to each. Sound like anyplace you know today?
Portland's being set up.
Just thinking out loud here, but it seems that every day presumptive candidate John Kerry comes out with some new clanger that bodes no good for the future. I'm increasingly doubtful that his election will make a significant difference in America's failed course.
Army delays retirements for Iraq-bound troops.
Solemn and moving memorial parade is marred by shouts from ignorant passerby who apparently somehow mistook the beautiful memorial for a protest.
Can homeless street kids provide proper care for a dog if they must first struggle to care for themselves?

There is genuine "911 Sceptic" material on the web and there is contrived bullshit put there to mislead you by misdirecting you and making genuine investigators look stupid. BEWARE
Who are you voting for in November? And why?

So new, I don't think there are any links up yet . . . President's Press Conference this morning . . . more of the same.
Spain has just expelled two men without bringing any charges against them, under an obscure immigration law that is a threat to civil liberties. These men were LEGAL residents who were not charged with ANY crime, but they were still deported. They have not gotten to see the evidence against them!
How many wake up calls do we need to understand everything around us is falling apart? From the economy to our decaying moral fiber, we are walking a treacherous path from which recovery may be next to impossible. Here are some mind-bending statistics for you to decide. Where is humanity headed? This is part one of a multi-part series.

NYT: Good or Bad?
Bush is an ignornat fool, a barbecue jockey who watches auto-racing and pro-wrestling. John Kerry is a highly educated veteran of an unjust war. What the fuck is kerry doing trying to out-Bush, Bush. Get a hold of yourself Sen. Kerry and lead the charge against this horrible war!
With the White House justifying war and occupation in Afghanistan and Iraq with hypocritical appeals to women's liberation, activists must be on guard against anti-Arab and anti-Muslim prejudices.
Based on the questioning by Secret Service agents of a 15 year old boy in Prosser, WA for drawing anti-Bush pictures in HIgh School Art Class, I compare his experience with my own as a Jewish kid in Nazi Germany; then tie in the Diebold Company, which is currently interfering with our voting rights, as was done in Berlin so many years ago.

In Struggle and for the Liberation of the Oppressed
I received this through email and thought it was a good take on the sovereignty of our food supply. Further down the article there's a handy list of organic food companies that are owned by huge corporations.
so, here is my story.
The other day I was in my Poly-Sci class at a public school here is Portland. We had some extra time at the end of the day so my teacher decised to open up a discussion. The question was: When in a group of all women how does patriarchy effect the way that individual women interact with eachother?
Oh no I'm a Bully Bush, a Bush-like Bully, or whatever I am it's NOT MY FAULT.
I really have a desire to ditch my responsibilities a few weeks late this summer to witness and join in the epic battle of good vs. evil set to happen in late August.
Kerry with Gore as his running mate would be an unbeatable team.

Just what, exactly, is PNAC? Some kind of soft drink? A new type of snack? Unfortunately, PNAC affects our well-being much more adversely than could any junk food. To see why, and also for details on other oddball groups with strange agendas of which we should be wary, read on.
thought for making the grass greener here.
The latest Willamette Week cover story pinpoints several arguments against supporting Starbucks; however, Taylor Clark's article ignores Starbucks' forged business relationships with companies such as Kraft and the Delek Group in Israel(a company responible for oil exploration, distribution and biochemical manufacturing).
I wonder how many families are dealing with this issue?
in response to this recent thread RE: Amy Goodman http://portland.indymedia.org/en/2004/05/289545.shtml and her biased interview of a 9-11 researcher - along with some of the comments made -
isn't it time someone established a 9-11 Radio Station or network?
7 carrier strike groups - half the entire US carrier fleet - are headed out to sea from Norfolk and San Diego, destination unknown.
the official cover story: it is a two month long "readiness exercise . . . part of the Navy's new Fleet Response Plan, which was developed to train naval forces for quick response to crises and in support of national interests." With 7 carrier groups (including an amphibious Expeditionary Strike Group from San Diego). And nobody is to know where they are going.
perhaps anything to do with the "al-Qaeda inspired" hostage-takings at the Khobar oil executives compound, northeast of Riyadh?
Because the Regional Forester in Portland, Linda Goodman, authorized the Monument timber sale as an 'emergency' under 'Healthy Forests Initiative,' it was being cut despite ongoing efforts to stop this illegal logging in court. Looks like vandals had to step in to put a 'people's injunction' on the logging for a couple of weeks. These are not 'terrorists' as the ignorant 'Undersheriff' claims below, they are at worst vandals, at best - heroes. DR Johnson would have likely kept cutting through the Memorial Day weekend in their malicious race to get the old growth trees on the ground before the courts stop them.
Mistakes that aren't mistakes in reality, but part of a strategy of US global domination and apologies that are insincere or ludicrous.
SCREAM coming this fall!
This War was a Deliberate screw up. Everything done wrong to provoke a strategy of terror. A new level of provocation deigned to create the new snakes of terrorism the enemy so badly needed at the fall of the Soviet Union and its co option, to provide the new excuse for military/ police spending.
WASHINGTON - Pat Tillman, the former Arizona Cardinals football player who died in April while a U.S. soldier fighting in Afghanistan, likely was killed by friendly fire, an Army investigation has concluded.
Dear Amy Goodman:
We, the undersigned, would like to state that the recent (5/26/04) appearance of David Ray Griffin on Democracy Now! (DN) repudiates every principle of press freedom that you claim to represent. It was a shameful betrayal to the movements opposing the Bush() Regime around the globe.
First of all, it is very revealing that you chose to have Griffin appear on your show in a hostile "debate" format. This contrasted remarkably from the easy, non-confrontational (and extended) interviews recently given to Richard Clarke, Peter Lance and Sibel Edwards. (Richard Clarke is a "defector" from the Bush Regime. Peter Lance is an author. Edwards is a "whistle-blower". All three uniquely advocate the official story of 911.) The clear implication is that DN is biased in favor of sources who advocate the official propaganda of the State.
